Hey, remember when we wrote how Carey Price was standing on his head?
Well that was like 28 minutes ago. Things change.
The Boston Bruins came out for the third period with a mission, scoring two goals on their first three shots after Price had stopped 22 through the first two periods.
Reilly Smith got things started at the 2:44 mark with a seeing-eye shot, beating Price for his second marker of the postseason:
That Boston was able to rally so effectively shouldn’t come as that big a surprise. The B’s led the NHL in third-period goals this year, with 106, and kept that going in the opening round against Detroit by scoring five third-period goals in the series win.
